College-Student Personal-Growth and Attributions of Cause
Anderson, W. P., Jr.; Lopez-Baez, Sandra I.
Professional Counselor, v2 n1 p66-80 2012
Little is known about levels of personal growth attributed by students to typical college life experiences. This paper documents two studies of student self-reported and posttraumatic growth and compares growth levels across populations. Both studies measure student attributions of cause to academic and non-academic experiences, respectively. It is suggested that future research on the outcome of college life experiences can use a similar approach with a variety of variables.
